The University of Wisconsin-Madison and Marshfield Clinic are currently recruiting trainees for postdoctoral informatics training in environmental exposures. These are for researchers wishing to solve biomedical problems requiring strengths in both computational and biomedical sciences (http://www.cibm.wisc.edu). The focus of the CIBM program encompasses translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, image analysis, and health informatics.
The CIBM postdoctoral traineeships in environmental exposures informatics, funded by the NLM Grant 5T15LM007359, are designed for cross-disciplinary training. The 54 CIBM faculty span 15 different departments and five colleges at UW-Madison and include multiple faculty at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation (located about 130 miles north of Madison).
The biomedical sciences are being radically transformed by advances in our ability to monitor, record, store, integrate and analyze information characterizing human biology and health at scales that range from individual molecules to large populations of subjects. This wealth of information has the potential to substantially advance both our understanding of human biology and our ability to improve human health through smarter methods for risk assessment, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning.
The CIBM training program is a partnership between the University of Wisconsin (UW) and the Marshfield Clinic Research Institute (MCRI). The program also has close relationships to the Center for Predictive Computational Phenotyping (an NIH BD2K Center of Excellence for Big Data Computing), the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (a NIH/NCATS funded CTSA), the Carbone Cancer Center, and the Genome Center of Wisconsin.
The postdoctoral trainees must be U.S. citizens or hold Permanent Resident status.
Candidates should possess a PhD, DMD, DDS, MD with demonstrated strength in biomedical informatics. All supported trainees must be permanent residents or U.S. citizens.
